Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari today received update on the developments surrounding the national response to the COVID-19 pandemicby the Presidential Task Force (PTF).
Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and Chairman of the PTF, Boss Mustapha, had last week informed Nigerians that the Task Force would brief the President on how the national response had so far progressed in its assignment.
Mustapha led the team made up of the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Health Dr Osagie Ehinare, Director General of Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC), Dr Chikwe Ihekweazu, and National Coordinator of the PTF on COVID-19 Dr Aliyu Sani, to the Presidential villa, Abuja.
Fielding question from newsmen, Mustapha said what the committee did was to “submit the fourth interim report to him (President) and to appraise him of the progress that has been achieved in the course of the last two weeks of the extension of the eased phase one of the lockdown and also discuss some of the challenges that we’ve had and suggested what we need to put in place, going forward.
